Re: Best way to cut slits for feathers

Go through ALL of Section 5.04.1, practicing making simple lines and simple curves in SCAL. Then you should be able to add whatever you like to that design.

Re: SCAL5 Pro / Adobe Illustrator 2021

Most likely, your Mac isn't recognizing the cutter for what it is. In the Cut Settings window in SCAL5, if you click on Test Connection, does the cutting head move? Also, did you verify the Baud Rate between SCAL (click on the Settings buttons in that Cut Settings window) with what your cutter requi...

Re: Printing and cutting seems to be at a different scale

Very good job testing and reporting. :) I assume you have SCAL5? If so, you have another option that will prevent the reg marks from moving based on whether you have your logo layers showing or hiding. You do NOT need to do this... just as an FYI. Go to Cutter>Cutter Settings and you'll see an optio...

Re: Saving as an SVG

I just ran some tests. I'm current only SCAL5 Pro 5.062 but I dont' think that would be the issue. And my SCAL2 is the same as yours. I added a 5" square to the screen in SCAL5. Then, in the SVG export window in SCAL5, I made sure the DPI was set to 72. Then in SCAL2, the SVG imported at the correct...

Re: Printing and cutting seems to be at a different scale

I should be able to help you figure this out... this is definitely my area of expertise. :) First of all, any chance you turned on Borderless printing in your printer settings? Whenever you do that with something like a print and cut application, the registration marks are actually moved by your pri...

Re: SCAL 5 with Graphtec CE 7000

Unfortunately, I don't personally use Graphtec cutters so I won't be much help. I think you're best bet is to submit a support ticket with SCAL using this link: http://craftedge.com/support/support_form.php You might also be able to find support on Facebook at a Graphtec group or a vinyl group. Good...

Re: Saving as an SVG

I should be able to help you resolve this. I need you to provide VERY specific version numbers for both SCAL5 and SCAL2. Just go to Help>About Sure Cuts A Lot in both versions and post back the versions shown in that window. Then I'll compare to mine and possibly get you updated so that we're both u...

Re: Saving as an SVG

You'll notice in the SVG export window. a drop down menu of DPI settings. This is needed because different programs have their own default SVG import settings. Some will pick out the DPI sizing from the SVG file itself, but not all. So, If you post back which program you're always using, then we can...

Re: Is SCAL Pro 5 compatible with IOS and GCC Expert 24?

I should have also mentioned that there is a 15 day trial for SCAL and that will allow you to test and make sure that it will meet your needs. It will add watermark cuts into your design but otherwise you can make sure it communicates properly.

Re: Is SCAL Pro 5 compatible with IOS and GCC Expert 24?

SCAL5 and SCAL5 Pro are the versions compatible with your GCC and there is a Mac version which works with previous Mac O/S's and Big Sur.
